The focus of the 1980s was economic adjustment; in the 1990s, it's social policy reform. Governments are realizing that without effective social policies, the equality and growth of a society are compromised.

In Social Policy in a Global Society, international experts examine common social policy issues of Canada and Latin American countries. Discussing relevant experiences and lessons learned, they identify areas for future research, training and information that may lead to more effective and equitable social policies and programs.
